LS1 Swap Packages

Over the years we have become well recognized as one of the premier Nissan tuners in the country. We have been building, repairing, racing, and tuning Nissans for almost 20 years now and have been highly published in many national magazines.

We perform many different engine swaps on all different Nissan platforms, specially the 240SX. Widely chosen because it is light, RWD, has independent suspension, and parts are readily available. These facts make it a great drift car. When you drift you need power and although the stock KA24 engine can be made to put out decent hp numbers it doesn’t lend itself well to constant beatings associated with drifting.
One of the newest swaps that have gained popularity is the Chevrolet LS1 V8. It produces 405hp stock! More than enough hp to easily navigate a drift course and produce a ton of smoke! The following is an outline of cost for this swap package. We can also install this engine into the 240Z, 280Z, 280ZX, 300ZX, Mazda Miata, and Mazda RX7 FD3S (93-98) but pricing is a little higher. Use this as a basic guide outline but call our Sales Rep for specific cost of your project.
